An excerpt of Chapter 2 of the book: DON’T SHOOT | 66 Reasons NOT to become a Professional Photographer
You know what sucks?
You’ll never be as successful as you were on your first day taking pictures. The first time you pick up a camera you have no clue. You look at the bright colorful pictures on the shiny little teevee on your phone-cam and think: Nailed It! Every photo is better than the last. Enjoy that feeling because it’s not gonna last long. It goes away as soon as you begin to have standards.
“As Edgar Degas said about painting,
photography is easy when you don’t know how,
but very difficult when you do.”
